Bond Street Imports
As I mentioned in my last post I have two exciting new businesses that I would like to sing their praises... bravo!
Last week I had the opportunity to attend a friend/client's wine tasting event for his company Bond Street Imports at Nana's in Durham, NC. Bond Street Imports www.bondstreetimports.com is a company that was launched in 2005 by Eric Bowers in Charlotte, NC. Bond Street does not"view wine as juice in a bottle but rather as a work of tradition that brings people together for special occasions and provides everyday enjoyment at all levels of sophistication." Bond Street offers access to small and limited production wineries from all over the world and they are considered a boutique. Some offering less 500 cases a year. Bond Street Imports will do private parties for your business and friends, if you are interested and in the area contact firstname.lastname@example.org. James is one of my clients, based in Raleigh, NC and knows wine almost as well as I know how to drink it so give him a call and he will set you up!

Emmy Preiss and Hariett Edwards Mills
These two gorgeous ladies are the talent and vision behind the newest art venture in Raleigh, NC, Wine and Design. I was able to go there for the first time for a birthday party on Sunday and fell in love! I mean really, take your own bottle of wine, pay $35 and they supply your apron, canvas, paint, brushes and anything else you may need. It is the best and you go home with your piece of art!
Our birthday girl chose brown cow because we had a private party and you can choose your own for larger groups.
My brown cow which is perfect in my son's room!
The artist's brown cow...not so bad if I do say so myself!
They have 4 artists to help and guide you through the process, because really it is meant to be fun and relaxing. "We want people to come in relax, leave all their worries at the door, and at the end of the night, be proud of something they did!" Emmy and Harriett
Check out their website for their schedule of paintings and sign-up online www.wineanddesignnc.com. They also have information about private parties, children's parties, fundraisers ad more.
As a special gift to my followers, all comments will be raffled and a drawing will be a $35 certificate to Wine and Design. The winner will be announced on Monday the 24th!
Here are some more pics from our party, everyone did such a great job!
The finished product...look at the herd!
